Phoenix Attorney Helping Convicted Felons Restore Their Civil Rights

Declaration of Independence

When one is convicted of a felony then they automatically lose many of their Constitutional Rights. However, once you have completed your sentence it is often possible to petition the Court to have those rights restored. If you are eligible to have your conviction set aside you are also eligible to regain the rights that make you a full citizen in the eyes of the law. Bretton Barber has helped hundreds of Arizona citizens regain the rights that are important to them. Contact our Phoenix area attorney today for a consultation.

By far the biggest complaint of those convicted of a felony, or misdemeanor domestic violence, is that the right to bear arms is automatically taken away. This is inconvenient for gun collectors, enthusiasts, and avid hunters. It may also create a financial hardship for anyone who was previously employed in fields such as the military, private security, or law enforcement. The good news is that many felonies that did not involve a sexual motivation or cause significant harm to the victim are eligible to restore gun and other civil rights. Other rights that can be petitioned for restoration include:

  • The right to vote
  • The right to hold public office
  • The right to certain benefits such as financial aid
  • The right to serve on a jury

If you have completed all requirements of your sentence then you deserve the right to move on with your life as a full citizen. When you contact the Barber Law Group, Bretton will sit down with you and discuss the details of your case. He will explain the benefits of having your rights restored, and determine if you are eligible for such a petition. Bretton strongly believes that all persons interested in rehabilitation deserve a second chance and always negotiates a reasonable fee. Contact him today and learn if you are eligible to have your gun and other civil rights restored.
